not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
The utensils were nestled all snug in their bed.. Umm... I mean drawer.
| While visions of sugar plums.. & COOKIES danced in our head. . . the pretty ones. |
Like these below.

When out on the roof there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
tore open the shutter, and threw up the sash.
Oh, wait. . . It was the whiz of the mixer, sprinkles and icing being dropped on the floor, chatter, laughter and a good time being had by all !
Or maybe, it was Santa . . .
"Now Dasher! Now Dancer!
Now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid!
On, Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch!
To the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away!
Dash away all!"
cookies. . Yum )
We tried to save some for neighbors, workers & friends. And of course- one or two for Old St.Nick - maybe the Reindeer ?
But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
We hope you take some time to enjoy the season
and make some beautiful memories with family
Till next time-
